The Berlin Wall was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. On one fateful day in 1989, the Wall was overcome by way of Peaceful Revolution and 9 November 2019 will mark 30 years since this monumental moment in history.
Gallup International will be coming to King’s College to further discuss how far we have came in the 30 years since the collapse of the Berlin wall. This will be done in large part to see how the future politicians of the world understand its impact and implications for the future.
In addition, it is our pleasure to announce that our speakers for this event will be: Kancho Stoychev (President of Gallup International) and Andrey Raychev (Co-Founder of Gallup International)
Following the presentation, there will be a brief networking event where drinks will be provided.
